Configuring Calendar Styles

You can configure calendar styles, which determine the font, font size, and color (for example, Arial, 9 pt., Black) that are used when event information is printed on the Event Schedule report and on the Event Calendar report.


For both reports, you must select the Use Calendar Styles option on the Options tab. You set the calendar style that is to be used for an event when making the reservation for the event in the Reservation Wizard. See the EMS User’s Manual.

To configure calendar styles

1. On the EMS menu bar, click Configuration > Other > Calendar Styles.

The Calendar Styles window opens. This window lists all the calendar styles that are currently configured in your EMS database and that have a status of Active.
